Thank You Peter Black - by Rose McCormick Brandon
(Peter and his sweetheart, May)
Once in a while, a person comes along who reaches out in all directions to encourage others.
We, at The Word Guild, have found such a friend in you, our dear PETER BLACK.
You never fail to write thoughtful comments about our blog posts, comments that inspire us to keep our fingers clicking away at our keyboards.
Thank you for continually reminding us to "Raise our Gaze," to look up because our true and best help comes from the Lord.
When it comes to blogger comments, yours are treasures.
When Kathleen wrote, Breaking Sugar, you said, "Thanks for sharing this candid candy episode. The sweet thing is how your friend was a help to you and through you a whole sugar-lovin' community got stirred up enough to overcome."
To me, you wrote, "Thank you for sharing this heartwarming story of triumph and courage springing forth from tragedy and evil." (The story was about Alice Herz Somme.)
Comments like these require well-functioning little gray cells. Your gray cells have been active on behalf of all who write for Canadian Writers who are Christian.
You bless us with your well-chosen words:
· i-words like informative, instructive, intriguing, insightful, invested
· p-words like panoramic, pointed, personal, perspective, parallel, prodigality (where did that one come from?)
· c-words like candour, courage, compelling
· s-words like salient, sublime
It’s taken us too long to say these words, but our lateness makes them no less sincere. From our hearts, we appreciate you.
You make our writing world a better place.
May your little gray cells generate many more words, not only in your comments to us but in your own books and articles.
May the Lord chase you down and heap blessings on your head!
